{she made it} instagram wallpaper

i've had a bunch of instagram photos laying around and no clue what to do with them...a few weeks back i even took the time to cut them all out with my handy guillotine cutter, thinking an idea would just pop into my head. but nada. 
then the other day i was just standing in the hallway, admiring the plain, boring staircase wall and finally that idea came to me. i didn't want to put up another gallery wall of frames like i had done in the dining room so what better way to use all those instagrams than to stick them diectly onto the wall and create a wallpaper effect? so I went to town and started covering up the staircase wall. this is not permanent and if we decide we don't like it anymore or want to switch out photos, they can easily be removed. i had some of these scotch reusable tabs and glue dots on hand and so i just stuck a couple in two corners on each photo and stuck it directly to the wall. i actually cut up the scotch tabs because they were much too big. 

make sure to use a level once in a while and then just add more photos. this is all i had on hand but i'm planning on ordering more soon so that i can keep going. it is kind of addictive and i'm eager to keep going. you can also print your pictures at home but i would recommend using matte photo paper so that you won't see all the sticky fingerprints. you know people will be touching these. if not, your kiddos surely will. so far i have no clue how i'm gonna keep logan from wanting to rip these down. 

i love it. can't wait to see the entire wall covered.
